Voronezh Drama! The outcome of the battle of the outsiders was finally decided by Rubin’s super substitution

Kazan moved out of the danger zone and Fakel was trapped at the bottom of the table.
Two people outside the RPL met in Voronezh. “Fakel” cannot win after the change of coach, and the situation of Rashid Rakhimov in “Rubin” remains difficult. One of the teams could break the winless streak and get a morale boost.
From the first minutes, “Fakel” actively launched the attack. Kvekveskiri, Motspan, Magal shot on goal. And in one of the episodes, Fakel’s striker, Evgeny Markov, wanted to attack so much that he tore his shirt. Rubin’s first attack ended in a goal. After a corner kick, Lazar Randjelovic sent the ball into the local goal. But referee Kirill Levnikov did not count the goal: Kvekveskiri fell in the area before the shot and the referee called an infringement. The moment that upset Rashid Rakhimov.
After a disallowed goal, Rubin went on the attack more frequently. Fakel’s fatigue also contributed to this: the team still cannot play with intensity during the 90 minutes. For example, in the middle of the half Fameye had a good chance, but Voronezh goalkeeper Belenov made a save. A little later, Kabutov made a good break into Fakel’s area, this time defender Bozhin stopped. But Sergei Tashuev’s team also recovered: in the end, Magal and Bozhin himself had good chances.
Placement on table top:
Is it even possible to reach such a “Krasnodar”? He easily eliminated Goncharenko’s team and was first again
Overall, it wasn’t the most spectacular half. Still, both “Rubin” and “Fakel” are under pressure for position in the tournament. Nobody wants to lose and not score points again.
The second half started very actively. And hard. Levnikov showed two yellow cards in three minutes. And then the teams also exchanged chances: Fameye scored a good shot at Rubin and Markov made a good header at Fakel. The logic of the game suggested that today the fans would still see at least one goal. But the ball did not enter the goal. Although the moments cannot be called killer.
Midway through the second half, Tashuev and Rakhimov tried to influence the game with changes. At the same time, the teams created danger in goal. But it’s all in vain. However, the situation was changed by the Argentine midfielder Valentín Vada. In the 83rd minute he entered the field and a couple of moments later he opened the scoring of the match. Rubin made a good combination, Dmitry Kabutov crossed from the right wing to the center of the area and Vada was in the right place and scored. Labor goal in the 85th minute!
“Fakel” – “Ruby” – 0:1
It is evident that “Fakel” was not prepared for such a scenario. Tashuev immediately made a double substitution, but he was catastrophically short on time to recover. The Voronezh team carried out a mini-assault, but failed to score.
Rubin achieved their second victory of the season and immediately rose to 12th place, leaving the relegation zone and the play-offs. And “Fakel” remained on the last line 16. So far, the replacement of Vadim Evseev with Sergei Tashuev has not brought results.
In the next round, “Fakel” will have another good chance to win – the crisis “Sochi” will come to Voronezh. But Rubin is waiting for the visit of the leader, Krasnodar. It will be much more difficult to get the three points. But Rashid Rakhimov, after the victory over Fakel, relieved the unnecessary stress associated with a possible dismissal. How long?
“Wings” is the main sensation at the beginning of the RPL. But the Samarans were great before:
“Wings” already took first place in the RPL. The team of Tikhonov, Anyukov and Karyaki amazed all of Russia
